I hate it when apostrophes are used incorrectly.

Daylight Savings Time, which everyone already hates, but is extra garbage when you have a 12 week old who has just started settling into a sleep routine.
My irrational pet peeve is when people call it Daylight Savings Time.

Remembering a kid I worked with named Butch, who due to a brain injury, had no sense of taste, but still put ketchup on stuff.

I don't see the problem.

Did he also lose his sense of texture?

He blew the opportunity to get cut through a disciplined diet, without the temptation of flavors from forbidden foods!

Spicy... Bordering on dad joke... But couldn't agree more. At least it's slowly crippling society (quite literally, causing permanent neck problems)

Yes, what you say is true, in my experiences.

Just before Texas Mini-Worlds 2017, I started going to a chiropractor. They were moderately busy and had a few new clients. Normal flow there.

Then, as time passed in 2018, I noticed they had increased their staff from 3 to about 6 people. I was curious. Then, my wait time started to increase upon arrival. The lobby size increased. I found this interesting.

You know me, I started yakking with everyone and come to find out their business has increased so much so they had to move to another location across the street and they have a much larger facility.

One of their largest reasons they said was: chronic cell phone use. It has a name that has been coined, but essentially they are doing the same neck adjustments on these people because of their "zombie" habit. It was put like this. Imagine owning a tire repair place and instead of replacing tires for sales because they are "flat", you are just putting air in the tire. The ease of the adjustment a person receives is relatively easy.

This may be too rational to qualify, but:

People who insist on always backing into parking spaces even though they aren't good at it. These idiots are constantly rendering other spaces useless because they can't see where they are parking, and end up way over the line.

The term "influencer."

People who call themselves "influencers."

Journalists who use the term "influencer."

People who demand discounts, etc. b/c they consider themselves an "influencer."

Like this from NYT: No, Your Instagram ‘Influence’ Is Not as Good as Cash, Club Owner Says

etc.
